I'm sorry if I offended you. Anyway, my point here is that when you pay that kind of money you just do not want to bear, or even think about the risk of something happening in the future that is not your fault. The crackle might be a sign of something happening sometime down the line, and IMO do get it exchanged just for complete peace of mind.

Yes they are much bassier.

But I always believed no headphones/IEM are suited to a person and im a very welcoming person to mods

especially when they are not costly.

 

My listening and conclusion is done by the follow setup:

 

Optical cable > Audio-gd compass > TWspc > HD650

 

Samsung Note 2 > Neutron MP > IE800 (Tea bag mod, -3db on 100hz)

 

But always remember technically superior doesn't necessarily means better. 

I have always believed that when it comes down to choosing your IEM/headphones, 

the musicality and sound signature should be the deciding factors.

Thank for your feedback.

Im looking for upgrading from my ex 800 (7550), i really like the deep bass and mid from them.

Do you think ie800 could be a good upgrade or should i go to k3003 or togo334 ?
post #1339 of 2394
I actually happen to own the 7550 too.

I think the IE800 is a good upgrade. it improves on the bass performance and fullness of the mids compared to the 7550. What I think the IE800 gets so right is timbre of the mids. Drum hits that sound a little hollow on the 7550 sound full and more real on the IE800.

It does not have quite as big a soundstage but it’s close. Treble is more laid back on the 7550 than the IE800.

The togo334 (which I own and am currently looking to sell) has more mid bass and is more smooth and lush than the IE800. treble is more laid back on this one than the IE800 (I guess it’s more similar to the 7550 in this area).

And, for both the 334 and IE800, details, speed and cleanliness are there. there’s no muddiness or distortion as one should expect at this price.

Just don’t expect a MIND BLOWING difference between the 7550 and either of these two IEMs. the 7550 is quite remarkable and performs better that one might think considering the price and the current crop of ~$1K IEMs out there.

Thank you. I also have 7550 and the IE800 is coming. I really like 7550 sound signature BUT found myself not using it very frequently because of the odd fit and below average isolation.

FWIW, I've owned all 4 (334, IE800, K3003 & 7550) and my favourite is the K3003, which I do consider a clear upgrade over the 7550, and a more balanced phone than the other 3 IEMs — but as LCfiner rightly points out, don't expect a night-and-day difference (law of diminishing returns). If eventually you decide to get the AKGs, I strongly suggest you try to source the non-remote/mic version.

 

My second choice would be the TG334. Now, since I do most of my music listening at home, the IE800's bass would soon become problematic (read: too much). Ultimately, I found the 334's bass a bit too much at times as well, but it still worked very well with plenty of music (more so than the IE800s).

All well and good, but the real question is, have you tried the 1+2??   *woodcans ducking*

It's time for me to get the IE800!  I need a pair of cheap IEMs to hold me over until I get a FAD Piano Forte.  Am I right, musicaln00b_FADfanboy_4321?

post #1348 of 2394

Here's two questions for you:

 

  • Does it really take that long to get the PFs?

 

  • Why get a cheap pair of IEMs now when the Monoprice IEMs, for instance, are more readily available, even if they're just a bit more expensive?

 

(BTW, thanks for finally getting my name right!)

post #1349 of 2394

Here's two questions for you:

  1. How long will it be before someone puts a PF on the FS forum?  They're either really crappy headphones (as per some reviews) or they're really awesome.  Either way, I'll continue to stalk those forums full-time and mock musicaln00b_FADfanboy_4321 part-time.
  2. If Monoprice made $1000 IEM, you'd be getting ten times as much in pure audio goodness.  Unfortunately, they stick to the $10 headphone that delivers $100 in value.  When will Monoprice start making IEMs instead of mere toys for n00bs?

 

Looking forward to the IE800.  Haters!

post #1350 of 2394

Ok then, no more questions, but simple straightforward answers:

1.  Probably pretty long. As for either or, most likely the former, but at least the Piano Fortes are very photogenic and quite shiny.

2.  Please don't take offence but I still regard you as the "eternal newbie", and as such I have to tell you the Monoprice phones are not "toys" but actual IEMs. But even if you were more experienced—and I trust you will eventually be—some people regard the HD800, LCD-2,3,4,5,6 etc, and high-end Stax phones as mere toys, so I reckon you'd be pretty safe with a pair of 8320s for now. The choice, of course, is yours, BUT please, never underestimate the advice given to you by a Headphoneus Supremus.
